I'm kind of discouraged with the rate of releases for "older" television programs, such as the HB cartoons, certain westerns and short-lived programs.
Do any of you feel that way?
One program that I'm waiting on is Young/New Maverick starring Charles Frank with cameos by James Garner. I'm guessing that WB Archives will wait to put this serious out until after they have all the original Maverick series out, along with the new Bret Maverick series. But at the rate they're going (about one season a year), it'll be four years before the WB considers putting out this eight episode series.
I'm grateful that we got five HB series out this year, and the seventies Jackson series, but I'm really hoping for Sid and Marty Kroft's The Lost Saucer and Far Out Space Nuts. Just when will they come out?
I wish WB Archives would put out both one classic tv series and one animated program a week. By my calculations, they have enough material between HB, Ruby-Spears, and recent WB animation to do fifty releases, if not more.
I'm grateful for the news about When Things Were Rotten, and other WB Archives material, but it's so slow. . . . .
Again, I know this is a down economy, but do any of you wish that some of these studios could pick up the ball just a bit? Any others just a bit discouraged?
